The royal green jackets rifles museum More True Religion Womens about the royal green jackets(Rifles)Museum A picture, it is said, is often worth a thousand words, and from the perspective of the military historian or museum visitor, it is often a crucial aid to gaining an understanding of how a commander may have appeared to his men or of what the battlefield may have looked like.This is especially so in the years before the crimean war(1854 after which photography became more commonplace, providing images, over time, of equal and often greater historical rather than aesthetic value. The royal green jackets museum is fortunate to own a number of oil paintings which pre-Date the era of photography and supplement the written record with handsome portraits of regimental figures, some of national renown, and of scenes depicting the actions in which the regiment and its antecedents were involved.Among them is a splendid painting by an unknown artist of major general coote manningham, who is revered by the regiment as the founder of the rifle brigade in 1800.Other valuable portraits from an historical perspective include paintings of a number of the regiment commanders at the battle of waterloo, including john colborne, later field marshal lord seaton, who, when in command of the 52nd and with his regiment, administered the decisive flanking attack that routed the french imperial guard and ensured allied victory.Among the battle scenes are five admirable and little-Known oils by thomas baines(1820 of engagements in which the 1st Battalion, The Rifle Brigade, took part during the war in South Africa in 1852.All these and more are included in the public catalogue foundation excellent listing of the museum paintings, which the museum trustees hope will increase the public awareness of their existence and lead visitors to hampshire and its residents wishing to view for themselves the treasures on their doorstep. We are indebted to the public catalogue foundation for initiating this project and for the images that it has spawned.
